Every kid deserves a moment in the spotlight, and Austin Worthen's 15 minutes of fame came just seconds before the buzzer.
The third grade student hauled the ball toward the basket in a last-ditch effort to score some extra points during a tournament in Oklahoma. And when Austin's half-court shot a success, the boy received a round of applause from enthusiastic audience members who were astounded by the feat.

The team ended up placing second overall in the tournament, according to KOCO.
